I have applied for several jobs with the County, but I never get called. I know I'm qualified, why not?
There are several reasons that could be contributing to the lack of an interview. To decide which applications will be considered, departments first determine whether your qualifications meet the minimum requirements as described in the recruitment announcement for which you applied. If you meet the qualifications, your application is then compared with the other qualified applicants for that position. Some positions tend to result in a high number of applications thus increasing the competition. For this reason, it is very important that your application be complete, accurate, thoroughly detailed and proofread. Those determined to be most qualified and best meet the needs of the department are contacted for interviews.
